    Indian Coast Guard (ICG) in an innovative manner trained 171 Indian fishermen at sea close to International Maritime Border Line (IMBL) between India and Pakistan.

     A large number of Indian fishing boats were gathered by shepherding at a common place where a boarding team of ICGS ship embarked to undertake community interaction program on a floating platform.

    As part of their training, the fishermen were apprised of the importance of carrying boat license, biometric card, distress alert transmitters, safety gears and life jackets for their personal safety and identification.

    They were advised to refrain from crossing IMBL and fishing in non fishing zone as these have legal implications and apprehension by the neighboring country and would result in hardship to families.

     During the training usage of Distress alert transmitter and reporting unintentional activation to nearest ICG unit was shown to the fishermen.

    Fishermen are the eyes and ears for the security agencies and play a vital role in reporting of any suspicious activity in Indian waters. They were requested to call on Indian Coast Guard ship on channel 16 and report sighting of any suspicious activity in the area.

    The fishermen were provided with logistic support and their general medical health check up was also carried out. The out of box idea of conducting community interaction program at sea has gained wide appreciation from the fishing community and will be practiced in near future.
